I guess ( more to guesstimated shakehead.gif ) may be around rm500-600++ for non Denso alternator. I guess for Denso recond may be can fetch a price of 700-900. Before that I did asked the guy at City Auto Sparepart the price of the ori Denso, and be told that for ori Denso is RM1200++ (that not including labour charge at the workshop )  The common one people who own Toyota cars always go for replacement one, but not Denso, made in China but technology are from Japan ( sort like Japanese join venture with China factory)

I also asked the uncle who serviced the alternator to replace all the bearings and brush carbon, but upon checking the brush carbon still got 1/3 ok. So no need to change, will take long time before need to change he said. ( I said to myself, they seem to be honest :thumbsup:  :thumbsup: , if not,  like some other rip-off shop surely they will replace whatever they can.

Some unscrupulous workshop even replace the parts without asking you first. This happened to my brother, when first came to workshop they quot rm2500 to fix his 20 years old kancil, after finish the job, it was a rude shock to him when  they charge to rm4500!! Saying that certain parts got to be replaced. They dont even call to ask him first. bangwall.gif Haihhh..

God bless the person who created this thread.

Had a problem with my Vios 2009 alternator. Toyota quoted me RM3350 to change the whole thing I nearly had a heart attack.

Went to this workshop and had it fixed for less than two hours. The uncle and auntie were very informative and friendly. They showed me what caused the problem which wasn’t carefully informed when I was at Toyota Service Centre.

Total cost: RM260. Super highly recommended and please come early to the shop. Thanks guys!

Finally got the starter on Lancer fixed. Kwong Weng Auto changed the solenoid and carbon on the starter. Since the car was left the almost whole day, told him to service and change the carbon on the alternator to.

All in cost $400 only. Accept credit card too but soon paid cash. Car starts just one click since more than a week back

Highly recommend those to go to him for this 2 issues

hi,

i recently had problems with my alternator not charging consistently and i wanted to save money from buying new one. I stumbled upon this workshop in Jalan Ipoh where they rebuilt and replace faulty alternator parts.

It is a good place to overhaul your old alternator and starter just the way we all overhaul our old engine

The boss is a silent old chap but very polite, i monitored his work and he was thorough and do things orderly, not very common in younger workshops we see these days where everything is about profit and fame, but working attitude kaput. 

Due to his excellent work and experience, i decided to share his shop info here, FYI i am not taking any sort of commission, just a chap who praises a good old school workmanship and working attitude

The worker told me almost all alternators can be fixed without buying a new one as the fault is usually due to malfunctioning parts only, replacing it will make it as good as new.

replacing old whining, squealing alternator bearing with new one:

http://i305.photobucket.com/albums/nn204/u...1004_162521.jpg 

the brushes of my 10 years alternator has worn off, no wonder it causes electrical inconsistency, compare below between new brushes and the worn ones:

http://i305.photobucket.com/albums/nn204/u...1004_163440.jpg 

i decided to refurbish my starter as well, the brushes was ok but the bush has worn out causing it to vibrate, u can see the scratch black marks on the plate due to scuffing from the starter body when it vibrates, this happens when we crank the engine, anyway they replaced it:

http://i305.photobucket.com/albums/nn204/u...1004_171347.jpg 

Cost was RM90 for alternator brushes and bearing including labour for removing and reinstalling the altenators, RM45 for starter bush including labour, not bad.
Location:

it is located nearby kem batu kentomen, jalan ipoh at the side of the main road

those coming from roundabout jalan kuching:
a) at roundabout, enter jalan ipoh
b) proceed straight passing through several traffic lights, u will find a caltex station
c) proceed further ahead until u see a signboard going to kem batu kentomen on the left, proceed straight but drive slow after this junction as the shop is nearby already, most people missed it
d) the shop is located besides furniture store, u can see a lot of batteries at the workshop front

http://i305.photobucket.com/albums/nn204/u...1004_164207.jpg 

Hope this helps
